Safe Family Services We help youth, who are experiencing, or have experienced domestic violence. We also provide preventative services to parents and at-risk youth.

Providing Safe Family Services to youth and parents.

There are many forms of domestic violence with different types of abuse, including physical, sexual, emotional, economic and stalking. Anyone can be affected on all levels and it is important to provide services that will empower youth to reach their highest potential.

Our Safe Family Services Program offers supportive services to Transition Age Youth (TAY), ages 18-24 years old, currently in an SDYS program, who have, historically, or are currently experiencing domestic violence.

Youth Aged 18-24

Over the years of providing housing to TAY (transitional age youth), the need for healthy relationship services has grown. Safe Family Services offers supportive services and financial assistance to TAY 18-24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and experiencing domestic violence.

Support for Parents & Youth

Safe Family Services’ AT Grant will offer supportive, trauma-informed services to SDYS parents and youth who have experienced trauma and abuse that has resulted in CWS involvement, by effectively intervening, through comprehensive evidence – based psychotherapy and case management, before concerns over child abuse and neglect escalate to substantiated cases that require removal from the home.

What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence can take many shapes and forms and can be both physical and emotional. It is a serious threat for anyone impacted.

Also called intimate partner violence, domestic violence occurs between people in an intimate relationship and can affect anyone of any age, gender, race or sexual orientation. Domestic violence can happen in heterosexual or same-sex relationships.
